Police lights generic

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) — A witness says a Walmart manager opened fire on fellow employees gathered in the break room of a Virginia store. Six people were killed in the country’s second high-profile mass killing in a handful of days.

Police said the assailant also killed himself.

There was no clear motive for the shooting. It left four people in the hospital.

A shopper told a local TV station that the store was busy just before the shooting Tuesday night with people stocking up ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.
